On the year's first 90-degree day in the city, members of Stonewall Kickball -Chicago league, a division of Stonewall Sports, held its annual "Drag Ball" charity kickball game on June 4 at Gill Park.

In this last game of the season, two members from each team formed two teams to represent each division to play the charity game while dress in drag. Progress Bar and minibar sponsored the event. The official charity of Stonewall Sports is Fred Says, a local non-profit, which provides support to teenagers living with HIV/AIDS in Chicago and across the country.

The final score was 14-8, in favor of minibar. The final total raised for Fred Says was slightly more than $3,000.

Immediately following the game, both sponsoring bars held post-game drag shows featuring players from each team.

Stonewall Sports-Chicago play a variety of sports, including kickball, dodgeball and bocce. The kickball season is officially over but bocce sign-ups are still available. ( Stonewall Sports' bocce season begins July 6. ) For more info, visit StonewallChicago.leagueapps.com; to learn more about Fred Says, visit FredSays.org .
